This may be the best non-fiction audiobook of all time. Fantastic narrator, interspirsed with snippets from Bruce, Clarence and others, tells a great story of Springsteen's rise from HS gyms to massive outdoor arenas. The author Peter Carlin clearly had significant contact with all the characters, and does his best to make you want to listen to every track on Nebraska, let alone all the tracks on all albums. One thing you need to do before you listen to this: save enough money to buy all Bruce albums you don't have because they will all beckon your ear when you listen to the book. Bravo!
Jamie and Claire's love endures!! Roger and Brianna overcome many obstacles to follow in their parents footsteps! And Ian is back!
I write this review to encourage people who have never read/listened to a Clancy to get this. It has a great narrative linking past to present. Clancy was spot on in light of recent events with his forecast of the situation. Uncanny. So sad this is his last.
I have read all the Jack Ryan's.....this is a great one to start on now...
Pretty solid effort by DB, though not quite as sensational a story as The Innocent. He did get me to guess wrong at a key element so cograts to him on that. I think you can stay at this and enjoy it.
Very solid effort. Clancy is back to teaching us about topics as well as keeping us in suspense. I heartily endorse this book.
This Clancy book really stands upright by itself. It always helps to have read previous books but in this case you really didn't need to . I would consider listening to this then going back 3 or 4 and catching up.
Lou Diamond Phillips does an outstanding job narrating as he has in the past with strange last names and different accents.
Stare down, Chinese style
You need to be somewhat excited about computers and the internet or weapons to really have a good listen.
This is a very one dimensional story Mr. Corey.
I learned about Yemen sure, but everything was so predictible
I think you could have made more jokes yourself personally.
This book helps you understand the horror that poor attitude cah heap on a company. Learn what you can do, even if you are a natural a-hole to stop it.
He gave hope to a-holes. He let them know that there is an out and a way that you can survive and in fact be effective in a company with this rule. A Must Listen and note that it is short. If you don't like what you are hearing it will be over soon, just like your career.
This is a sports book that transcends sports. It builds on relationships and uses Reilly's great point of view to get the poit accross.
A great work of fiction interweaving a fair amount of non fiction surrounding the Kennedy assasination. The story line is both plausable and reasonably fast paced for a long book. I had never done a King novel and this was recommended correctly to me as a virgin.
Outside of the time travel element which makes it a King novel, it has a Baldacci flair to in for the sojourn of the protagonist who you know will win in the end, but dang it is an uphill battle.
Any of the Maine characters were sensational. Wasson's narration is among the best I have ever heard remarkably imitating countless regional and international accents.
Right at the end the final section, changed evidently by King at his son's suggestion, worked very well.
Really funny stuff. Many sections have inside female jokes, but they are tastefully conveyed by Fey so you won't get to embarressed
Fey's memories of the SNL years are priceless. She did a nice job recollecting Palin's interaction with her as well
She does a decent job of herself. Really.
It's a Date Night flick. Honest.
